sick sick sick

May 31st, 2002 (08:23 pm)

Went to mgh earlier: fever, swollen tonsils, vague feeling of internal strife. And I all I get is 10 days of amoxicilin and a (call back monday for the test results.).

Fucking epidemiologically clueless people.

And, I have to work first shift tomorrow, and third shift on Sunday. glah (no medical approval for time off)

Your boss wouldn't let you take a day or two off because you're sick? Sounds like a fine human being there.
Personally, if they made me go into work when I was sick, I would ham it up as much as possable until everyone was convinced the boss was evil incarnate for making me come in, and I was sent home.

Hope you start feeling better soon. You should within a day or two of starting the antibiotics.

I hope the amoxy works. I hope you have some thing it /does/ work on. Have you ever taken it before?

And if you're contagious, they shouldn't want you at work.

Hey -- about the job search: my roommate is leaving her sysadmin job at the Harvard Smithsonian CFA (where Io works). No customers, normal hours, reasonable people. See http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/cfa/hr/postings/
for a list of job postings, which includes several IT ones. And she said you could email her if you had questions (chaos at glassonion dot org).

well, this morning I drank gatorade, and threw that up. Then I drank water, and I threw that up too. So Patricia was kind enough to drive me to mgh and back.

Ack! Eek! The last time we spoke you were just falling into this illness. I'm sorry they can only treat you with general antibiotics (rrra . . . overused antibiotics) and that your stomach is not happy with Gatorade . . . that is bad news indeed.

So, your boss is making you come in? Let him/her know how you feel . . . share the love. I suggest bringing in a fod they will definitely eat, put it in an area, offer it to him/her, and make sure you added in a few special ingredients beforehand . . . fscker.
